JPMorgan extended the Zether protocol and may use it with Quorum

According to Coindesk, JP Morgan revealed that it has extended the Zether protocol. The Zether protocol is a secure payment mechanism that is compatible with Ethereum and other smart contract platforms and is designed to add a deeper level of anonymity to transactions. The New York-based financial institution will open the extended source code on Tuesday and may use it with Quorum. Quorum is a private version of the Ethereum developed by the bank.
